Details

The Delaware & Hudson Canal, running from the coalfields of Pennsylvania to the Hudson River, was the first $1 million private investment project in US history built in the 1820s human hands. The D&H Canal Museum commemorates the canal and contains many original artifacts from the canal days, as well as a replica of a canal boat cabin and a working model of a lock. The Five Locks Trail follows the canal towpath past the remains of locks whose still-intact stonework was so precisely cut that it required no mortar.
